Our View: Cities gain from school rivalry
February 6, 2019
We are proud of Sweetwater County’s high school students.
During the annual friendly blood drive between Green River and Rock Springs high schools, students raised a total of 713 pints of blood. The schools almost raised exactly the same amounts, with Green River raising 360 pints of blood and Rock Springs raising 353 pints. The human body, depending on size, can contain between 9 and 12 pints of blood, meaning the two schools raised enough blood for between 59 and 79 people. More realistically speaking, that’s enough blood for hundreds of blood transfusions.
We’re always happy to see...
